Duration is an indicator to assess the risk of bonds. It is a measure of the interest rate risk entailed in fixed-interest securities and represents the average time the invested capital is tied up, expressed in years. Because interim interest payments are made on the invested capital, the duration is shorter than the bond’s term to maturity. The longer the duration, the more bond prices will rise or fall when interest rates change.
